#Disneyside {sponsored post}

*This is a sponsored post. I received free products from Mom Select and Disney in exchange for my views and blog posting. All opinions are my own.*

J is turning 4 soon and he couldn't be more excited. I, however, seem to be in an endless state of lament over the fact that my baby continues to grow up despite my denial over this. He has never had a birthday party and never asked for one until this year.

"When is it going to be MY birthday?" he says with arms crossed and a foot stomp!

Well, it is fast approaching. I am throwing him a party this year and inviting his darling little friends. The good people at Disney and Mom Select are helping me out too!

I have been chosen to be a #Disneyside @Home Celebrations host and the party window falls in the time frame of J's birthday.

This past week I received a huge box of party goodness overflowing with fun stuff and everything needed to host a fabulous Magic Kingdom inspired party.

Inside the box was an American Tourister  rolling & spinning carry-on bag packed with party supplies! 

J's guests will be enjoying photo card packs from HP!

Party plates and decorations from Disney, Craisins from Ocean Spray, an iPhone 5 case, measuring cups from ABC's The Chew, and Mickey Mouse cookie cutters too (my mom makes the best cookies ever)!

They have provided wonderful ideas for games and yummy recipes to try (I may have to have a trial run on the food). Now, I need to plan, send invitations, and get ready to celebrate J with Disney!

Thank you, Mom Select and Disney! Planning this party is helping me cope with the denial that my children are growing up! Next on the list, planning a return trip to Disneyland!

Phresh {a review}

Another way to enhance your healthy lifestyle is to use products for your household and for your personal care that are made up of natural ingredients. Yes, it can be done.

There are many product lines on the market today that are available. I have tried most. Many have less than desired effects too. Streaky counter tops or a face cream that just feels like a big blob of goo has been smeared on my cheek. A lot of money spent trying to figure out what works and what does not. I strive for a chemical free home and this includes personal care products too.

I have recently had the opportunity to try an....wait for it.....ALL NATURAL DEODORANT! Yes, I did. Yes, I love it!

The lovely people at Phresh sent me a stick to try. I have worn this deodorant everyday since it landed on my doorstep. I have had zero issues with it. It glides on smooth, it doesn't leave white marks on clothes, and IT WORKS!

Phresh deodorant is FREE of the following:
Propolyne Glycol 

You don't want to eat those things so why put them on your body? 

Phresh deodorant is 100% vegan and is cruelty free.

Living naturally is important to me and my family. Phresh deodorant works with my lifestyle.
